HILLSDALE -- The students who sit in the end zone and do push-ups for every point scored by the Hillsdale College football team couldn't keep up with the Chargers on Saturday afternoon.

Gannon couldn't, either.

Hillsdale had its biggest scoring output in 39 years and routed Gannon 59-3 on a warm, sunny afternoon at Muddy Waters Stadium. As the points piled up, the four or five students divvied up the push-ups to match the Chargers' point total. Normally, each student matches the point total.

The last time the Chargers scored at least 59 points in a game was in 1968 when they defeated Northwood 68-25.

Chargers coach Keith Otterbein looked like the late Boston Celtics coach Red Auerbach as he lit up a celebratory cigar moments after the end of the game.
